After a tough fight, Raffles managed to pry themselves away from the position of yesteryears to move to a few steps up to secure second place in the 128th. Annual Athletic Meet, 1977. A pat on the back for all.
Brilliant performances were displayed by boys and girls during the sports meet and the cross-country. Loh KL and Choong TW were most outstanding during the sports meet. Loh secured top position for the 100m, 200m, 400m, 800m, and went on to capture the individual championship for Division C. Chong did marvelously well for the House by obtaining first spot for the 100m, 200m, 400m, hurdles and second position for the 100m, hurdles in Division B.
On the whole, the girls did pretty well, managing to score points in almost all events. During the cross-country, the House performed tremendously well and secured top honours in Class 2 Boys and the Girls’s section. Tan SH and Sallehah grabbed the first second place respectively. Badaruzaman emerged as the champion in Class 2 for boys.
